Title: Good words
Post by: toty5 on February 09, 2016, 10:17:14 AM
An-Nawwas ibn Sam’aan reported that Prophet Muhammad said:
"Righteousness is good character, and sin is whatever bothers you and you do not want people to know.  " (Saheeh Muslim)
An-Nawwas ibn Sam’aan is a famous companion of Prophet Muhammad.   He belonged to the Arab tribe of Kelaab and settled in Syria after the death of the Prophet. 


His report is collected by a scholar of hadeeth named Muslim ibn Al-Hajjaj, who was born in 817 CE in the city of Naishapur, in north-eastern Iran, and died there at the age of 58, in 875 CE.   Muslim began studying the science of Prophetic hadeeth at the age of 15 and traveled to Iraq, Hijaz (Western Saudi Arabia), Syria, and Egypt to study under great hadeeth masters like al-Bukhari, Ahmad ibn Hanbal, and others.   He compiled a book containing some 9,200 hadeeths which is known as Saheeh Muslim.   Muslim scholars consider it to be the most authentic compilation of Prophetic hadeeths after Saheeh al-Bukhari. 


This narration is important in that it sheds light on some of the more subtle aspects of righteousness and sin, helping to define them both.   Since Islam gives so much importance to the belief in and worship of One God, one may incorrectly think that this alone is enough to be righteous.   This hadeeth, however, shows that one of the main consequences of correct and true belief is good character, and that it is an intrinsic aspect of the meaning of righteousness.   It emphasizes some of the meanings found in the saying of God which mentions that righteousness, as well as a being a combination of correct belief and prescribed worship, is also proper conduct in human relations:


"Righteousness is not that you turn your faces to the east and the west [in prayer].   But righteous is the one who believes in God, the Last Day, the Angels, the Scripture and the Prophets; who gives his wealth in spite of love for it to kinsfolk, orphans, the poor, the wayfarer, to those who ask and to set slaves free.   And (righteous are) those who pray, pay alms, honor their agreements, and are patient in (times of) poverty, ailment and during conflict.   Such are the people of truth.   And they are the God-Fearing.  " (Quran 2:177)
Rather than being an end in itself, one of the main purposes of worship is to bring about traits beneficial to the self and society.   God says about the salah (prayer):
"Surely, the salah prevents lewd acts and bad deeds…" (Quran 29:45)


Hence one can say without any qualms that Islam as a whole came to perfect good manners, as did the Prophet himself:
"Indeed I was only sent to complete the most noble character traits.  " (Saheeh Muslim)
As Islam is not a mere religion but a complete way of life, incorporating all of its various facets and aspects, good manners is actually regarded as a means of worship by which one may achieve the same reward of doing other more obvious voluntary acts of worship.   The Prophet, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, stated:
"Through his manners and good conduct, the believer can attain the status of a person who frequently fasts and prays at night.  " (Abu Dawud)
Rather, the Prophet even stated it to be one of the best forms of worship, second to none but the obligatory mandates of Islam:
"On the Day of Resurrection, nothing will be heavier in the scale (of good deeds) of the believer than good conduct.   God hates the one who swears and hurls obscenities.  " (Abu Dawud, Al-Tirmidhi)


Through maintaining good conduct, one becomes one of the beloved servants of God.   The Prophet said:
"The most beloved slaves of God to God are those who have the best manners.  " (Al-Hakim)


When one realizes the importance of good character and its essentiality in defining righteousness, an aspect which is the goal of Islam, this exhorts Muslims to fulfill this aspect of faith as well, since one can not become "righteous" through mere belief and devotion to God in themselves without good character. 
But what is regarded as good character? We find that the Quran and Sunnah in various texts define it to be any trait that is beneficial to humans, both to oneself as well as to others, at the same time not being generally or specifically prohibited by Islam.   For example, God says:


"Those who suppress their anger, and forgive other people – assuredly, God loves those who do good.  " (Quran 3:134)
Righteousness is dealing fairly, justly and politely with one’s family.   The Prophet said:
"The believers with the most perfect faith are those with the most perfect conduct and manners.   And the best ones amongst you are those who are best to their families.  " (Al-Tirmidhi)


Truthfulness is an essential aspect of good character which leads to Paradise.   The Prophet said:
"Indeed truthfulness is righteousness, and indeed righteousness leads to Paradise.  " (Saheeh Muslim)
These are but a few examples of the numerous texts which define and exhort Muslims to excel in their character and manner.   Although righteousness is those deeds which are naturally pleasing to the conscience of humans, religion plays a vital role in defining what it is.   For example, anything of which its harm is greater than its good cannot be defined as righteousness, even if it may be otherwise regarded as goodness and righteousness.   The Prophet said:
"It is not righteousness that you fast during travel.  " (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)
Although fasting is one of the most meritorious of deeds, here it is not considered righteousness due to the harm it may incur to the individual and his comrades during a journey.   Also, to steal from the rich in order to give to the poor may not be regarded as righteousness, as stealing has been specifically prohibited in the religion. 
At the same time, a deed which may sometimes be seen as harsh may also be considered good character at times, such as striking a child at a certain age as a means of education.   The Prophet said:
"Command your children to pray when they are seven, and strike them [if they do not] when they are ten…" (Abu Dawud)
For this reason, we look to divine guidance in order to define for us good manners and character, exemplified by the Prophet,

as God said:
"Surely, you (O Muhammad) are upon a high standard of moral character.  " (Quran 68:4)
God also said:
"Indeed in the Messenger of God you have a beautiful example of conduct to follow…" (Quran 33:21)
Aisha, the wife of the noble Prophet, was asked about his character.   She replied:
"His character was that of the Quran.  " (Saheeh Muslim, Abu Dawud)

the Prophet mentioned another subtle aspect of sin, which is that sin is anything which bothers a righteous person’s conscience and which a person seeks to hide from others.   An array of actions comes into a person’s mind once they hear these words.
God has inspired within each soul the ability, although limited, to recognize truth from falsehood.
"He inspired it (the soul) to know its sin and its piety. " (Quran 91:Cool
As long as a person seeks righteousness, they will know when they have done something wrong through their conscience, even though they might find numerous ways to excuse themselves for what they are doing.   They would never like anyone to come to know of that thing, for they are ashamed of it; their religion is enriched with shyness, shame and bashfulness.   



The Prophet said:
"Shame and bashfulness is from the perfection of faith. " (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)
Shame is something which can prevent a person from committing evil.   The Prophet said:
"If you have no shame, then do as you please. " (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)
Shame, the highest level being shameful in front of God from committing sins, is a key factor in avoiding sin, and this standard may also be used to judge whether or not an act is a sin.
These sentiments of conscience and shame are a natural consequence to true belief and faith, and this is what the religion of Islam seeks to create within an individual, an Islamic conscience which guides humans through their lives.
This inner conscience is what tells the state of the heart of the individual, whether it is alive seeking the truth, or dead, filled with the desires of this worldly life.   Lack of religiosity and indulging in sin causes a person to lose one’s conscience, and it can no longer be used as a source of guidance.
"…why then did they not believe with humility?  But their hearts became hardened, and Satan made fair seeming to them that which they used to do. " (Quran 6:43)


"Have they not traversed through the land, and have they heart with which they perceive, or ears with which they hear?  Indeed it is not the sight which is blinded, but rather what is blinded is the hearts which are in the ---s. " (Quran 22:46)
The heart can be used as a guide, in conjunction with the intellect and revelation, in order to ease the search for the truth.   The heart of one who is searching for the truth is indeed one which is alive, for it is this life and yearning which causes them to search for it.   This type of person will never find peace at heart in any other religion except the religion which God


ordained for humanity, and as long as their yearning for the truth exists, their conscience will continue to bother them until they find the true religion of God.   Indeed if the person is sincere, God will guide them to the truth:
"And those who desire Guidance, He (God) will increase them in Guidance, and inspire them with [the way to] piety. " (Quran 47:17)

It is narrated on the authority of Umar ibn al-Khattab who said: I heard the Messenger of God say:
“All actions are judged by motives, and each person will be rewarded according to their intention.  Thus, he whose migration was to God and His Messenger, his migration is to God and His Messenger; but he whose migration was for some worldly thing he might gain, or for a wife he might marry, his migration is to that for which he migrated. ” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Saheeh Muslim)


This hadeeth is indeed one of the greatest and most important of the sayings of Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, as it sets one of the most important principles in the religion of Islam, specifically in regards to the acceptance one’s religion and deeds by God, and generally to all other normal every day activity in which a person involves himself.  This principle is that in order for any action to be accepted and thus rewarded by God, it must be done purely for his sake.  This concept is often called “sincerity to God”, but the most exact meaning would be “purity of intention”.


At one of the stages of the life of the Prophet, God ordered all the Muslims to migrate from Mecca to the newborn Islamic state of Medina.  In this hadeeth, the Prophet gave an example of two types of people in regards to this religious service of migration:
• The first example was that of the person who migrated to Medina purely for the sake of God, seeking His Pleasure and seeking to fulfill His command.  The Prophet stated that the deed of this type of person will be accepted by God and he will be rewarded in the fullest.


• The second example was of a person who fulfilled this religious service outwardly, but his intention was not the pleasure of God nor fulfilling His Command, and so this type of person, although he may achieve what he was intending in this life, will not receive reward for it from God, and the deed is not one which is considered acceptable.
In Islam, there are two realms to a person’s life, the religious and the mundane.  Although there is a clear separation between the two in regards to religious jurisprudence, they are in fact inseparable, as Islam is a religion which legislates in matter family, society and politics as well as the belief and worship of God.  Thus, although this saying of the Prophet appears to apply to the religious aspect of a persons’ life, it actually applies to both.

Purity of Intention in the Mundane Realm
Since the wording of the hadeeth discussed in Part One is general, it is understood that a person may even be rewarded for their everyday normal activity which they perform, as long as their intention is correct and that act is not prohibited by the religion.    The religion of Islam has encouraged and sometimes even placed the obligation upon humans of specific manners and mores in regards to life outside worship.   

It has legislated various methods in performing every day activities, from sleeping to eating.    If a person performs the various activities in conformity to its legislation, they will be rewarded for it.   
This aspect of intention allows one’s entire life to become an act of worship, as long as the objective of that life is the pleasure of God, Whose pleasure is achieved by doing good and refraining from evil.    A person can turn everyday activities into acts of worship by purifying his or her intention and sincerely seeking God’s pleasure through these activities.   

God’s Messenger, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, said:
“Helping a person or his belongings onto his mount is an act of charity.    A good word is charity.    Every step taken on the way to performing prayers is charity.    Removing an obstacle from the road is charity.   ” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)
Earning a living can be rewarded as well.    The Companions saw a man and were astonished by his hard work and industry.    They lamented: “If he were only doing this much work for the sake of God…”
God’s Messenger replied:
“If he is working to support his small children, then it is for the sake of God.    If he is working to support his elderly parents, then it is for the sake of God.    If he is working to occupy himself and keep his desires in check, then it is for the sake of God.    If, on the other hand, he is doing so to show off and earn fame, then he is working for the sake of Satan.   ” (al-Mundhiri, as-Suyuti)


One may gain reward even for the most natural acts, if of course they are accompanied by the proper intention: God’s Messenger said:
“When one of you sleeps with his wife, it is an act of charity.   ” (Saheeh Muslim)
The same can be said for eating, sleeping, and working as well as traits of good character, such as truthfulness, honesty, generosity, courage, and humbleness.    These can become worship through sincere intention and deliberate obedience to God.   
In order for these otherwise mundane actions to be deserving of divine reward, the following conditions must be met:
A.    The action must be lawful in and of itself.    If the action is something prohibited, its perpetrator deserves punishment.    God’s Messenger said:
“God is pure and good, and He accepts only what is pure and good.   ” (Saheeh Muslim)
B.    The dictates of Islamic Law must be completely observed.   


Deception, oppression, and iniquity must be avoided.    God’s Messenger said:
“He who deceives us is not one of us.   ” (Saheeh Muslim)
C.    The activity should not keep the person from performing his or her religious obligations.    God says:
“O you who believe, do not let your wealth and children distract you from the remembrance of God…” (Quran 63:9)
From this discussion, we can see the greatness of this hadeeth and how important it is in forming the concept of the acceptability of deeds and reward from God.    We also see from this hadeeth that the concept of worship and service in Islam is not limited to performing certain legislated ritual acts, but rather encompasses the whole life of the Muslim, making him a true slave to God.

Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Umar (Radiyallahu anhu) narrates that the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
“The person who is invited amongst you by his brother should accept the invitation whether it is a wedding invitation or anything similar to it. ” [Muslim]

Hadhrat Jabir ibn Abdullah (Radiallahu anhu) narrates that the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
“If anyone of you is invited to partake of meals, he should at least accept the invitation.  Thereafter he may partake of it if he desires or he may totally abstain from it. ” [Muslim]

Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (Radiallahu anhu) narrates that the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
“If anyone of you is invited for meals, he should accept the invitation.  If he is fasting, he should make Duaa (of goodness and blessing) for the person who has invited (some maintain that he should set out and perform salaah at the host’s house), and if he is not fasting he should partake of the meal. ” [Muslim]

No excuse will be entertained in declining an invitation.  However, if wine and other intoxicants are provided at the invitation or food will be eaten out of gold and silver utensils or there is a fear of any other evil, one should on no account accept the invitation.




If uninvited people accompany one who is invited, he should firstly seek the host’s consent so that he is not annoyed and disheartened (by the arrival of an uninvited guest).

Hadhrat Abu Masood Badri (Radiallahu anhu) narrates: A certain person invited the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم over for meals.  Including the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, food was prepared for 5 people.  On the way to the invitation, a sixth person joined them.  When the group arrived at the door of the host, the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
“This person has also joined us.  if you wish to, you may permit him or else he will return. ”
He (the host) said:
“O Prophet of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم, I don’t mind him partaking of the meal. ” [Muslim]

Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Masood (Radiallahu anhu) says that the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
“Accept the invitation of he who invites you.  Avoid declining a gift and refrain from annoying the Muslims. ” [Muslim]

After praising, and thanking God, the Prophet, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, said "O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again.  Therefore, listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.

O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust.  Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners.  Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you.  Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds.  God has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived.  Your capital, however, is yours to keep.  You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity.


God has Judged that there shall be no interest, and that all the interest due to Al-Abbas ibn Abd’el Muttalib shall henceforth be waived. . .
Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion.  He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you.  Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under a trust from God and with His permission.  If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness.  Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers.  And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.

O People, listen to me in earnest, worship God, perform your five daily prayers, fast during the month of Ramadan, and offer Zakat.  Perform Hajj if you have the means.

Hadith Qudsi, and learned that this type of hadith belong in a special category.   These sayings are God’s message to humankind in the words of Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, and deal predominantly in ethical and spiritual matters.   “All of you are misguided except those whom I guide.  .  .  all of you are hungry except those whom I have fed.  .  .  ” Without God, we are nothing, without God in our lives and our hearts we are lost, alone and vulnerable.   Humans need God. 


God, on the other hand does not need us.   He is the Al Mighty, the Most High, and the Most Powerful.   Whatever good we do does not benefit or affect God in any way neither does the bad we do.   God does not need anything from us.   He is the Self Sufficient Master Whom all creatures need – As Samad. 
“He is Allah (God), (the) One.   Allah-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks).   He begets not, nor was He begotten; And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.  ” (Quran 112)
The hadith we are focusing on (which was mentioned in the first part of this series) explains that Islam is a religion concerned with justice, and a religion that condemns oppression of any kind.   God then reminds us that everything we have is from Him.   When we are hungry God feeds us, when we are naked He clothes us, and when we sin He, the Most Wise, the Most Just, forgives us. 


God covers us in His mercy, but at the same time, He reminds us that our strength is from Him alone.   Any good we do is for our own benefit and any sins we commit are to our own detriment.   Our behavior does not benefit Him in any way.   God is completely independent from His creation.   If all humans were to ask for something from God and if every request was fulfilled it would not decrease His Kingdom, His Power or His Strength in any way. 
Every day in our prayers we ask God to guide us on the straight path, the path that leads directly to His Mercy and Forgiveness.   At least seventeen times a day Muslims repeat the words of the opening chapter of the Quran.   We ask for God’s guidance, acknowledge that we worship Him alone and seek help from Him alone.

“All the praises and thanks be to God, the Lord of mankind, jinn and all that exists.  The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.  The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i. e.  the Day of Resurrection).  You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help.  Guide us to the Straight Path.  The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger nor of those who went astray” (Quran 1:1-7)

This hadith Qudsi God reminds us in a most beautiful and sublime way that all power and strength is from Him alone.
We are able to move and function, eat, drink, and breathe; all our bodily functions and systems work with precise timing.  Our hearts beat and our blood circulates.  All these functions depend entirely on the will of God.  If any stop working, no one can return it to normal except by the will of God.

God is the One who provides all sustenance.  Imagine all the work that goes into having a piece of toast for breakfast.  The bread, the toaster, the butter, and the electricity and so on, all did not magically appear.  The butter was churned, the toaster manufactured, the wheat was harvested, and turned into flour, and the bread was baked, wrapped and delivered.  As we spread the butter on the toast we need to remember that none of these simple, yet necessary, tasks could have occurred without the permission or the power of God.

God is the Creator of everything and He has no needs.  He does not need our obedience, and our disobedience does not harm Him.  He does not need to reward us if we obey Him, he has chosen to because of His generosity.  Quran tells us that we were created to worship God, but this does not mean He needs our worship; no, on the contrary, we are the ones who need to worship God.  It is in the remembrance of God that our hearts find rest.

“. . and I (God) did not create the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone). ” (Quran 51:56)
“Verily, in the remembrance of God do hearts find rest. ” (Quran 13:28)
“All of you are misguided except those whom I guide. . . ” this is a beautiful and comprehensive saying from the traditions of Prophet Muhammad.  It emphasises God’s love for humankind, but it also reminds us that we should be grateful for that love.  We can search for comfort and peace anywhere in this world but we will never find it until we search for it in our relationship with God.

Allah says in the Quran what means

:

{Glory be to Him Who made His servant to go on a night from the Sacred Mosque to the remote mosque of which We have blessed the precincts, so that We may show to him some of Our signs; surely He is the Hearing, the Seeing.  } (Al-Israa' 17:1)


There is no doubt that Al-Isra (the night journey) followed by Al-Miraj (the heavenly ascension) was one of the miracles in the life of our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).   According to the most accepted view, it happened on the 27th of Rajab, the seventh month of the Hijri calendar, in the tenth year of Muhammad's prophethood. 

It is reported in Hadith literature, that the Messenger of Allah was carried from the Sacred Mosque in Makkah to the "Farthest Mosque" (Al-Masjid al-Aqsa) in Jerusalem on a creature called Al-Buraq in the company of the archangel Gabriel (peace be upon him).   There he led a congregational prayer of the prophets of God. 


Then Gabriel took him to the heavens where he met the prophets Adam, John, Jesus, Idris, Aaron and Moses (peace be on them all).   In the seventh heaven, he met Abraham (peace be on him). 

He was then brought to the Divine Presence.   The details of this encounter are beautifully detailed in the beginning of surat An-Najm (52). 


Prayer: God-given Gift


During this time, Allah ordered for his nation fifty daily Prayers.   But on the Prophet's return, he was told by Prophet Moses (peace be on him) that his followers could not perform fifty Prayers.   Thus, he went back and eventually it was reduced to five daily Prayers.   After this, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) returned to Makkah on the same night itself. 


Therefore, Muslims should be thankful to Allah for this gift.   They should take care of it and never neglect it.   It is the thing that allows the Muslim to communicate with the creator five times as day. 

Time and Space Are Not Bound for Allah


One major lesson of that miraculous event, was that space and time which are bound by laws of nature for humans, are not so bound for Allah.   On that night prophet Muhammad bridged time and space and this world, traveling to the heavens by Allah's will. 

I believe that for those who study philosophy the abstract as well as the symbolic implications of the event might be very stimulating indeed.   The gap between the reality of this life and that of the life to come simply diminished.   This is illustrated by the Prophet's encounter with other prophets who were long since dead as far as we normally think of it but who, in reality, live as beings in a different form somewhere else. 

The implications of the night journey cannot be overstated.   The miraculous nature of the Prophet's journey established his divine-stated legitimacy as the seal of all prophets.   Allah brought him to Him to show us his true worth in the sight of Allah. 

All religious traditions share the concept of miracles, that is, something that defies logic, nature, or the established constitution and course of things. 


We will limit our discussion to legitimate miracles from Allah, which are by definition the only true miracles.   When the forces of disbelief are strong, typically the prophetic miracles that oppose them are stronger. 

Prophet Moses was given several miracles, which included his staff that turned into a massive snake and culminated in his parting of the Red Sea, as a divine response to the extreme infidelity of Pharaoh. 

Similarly, Prophet Jesus was given even the power to raise the dead, in order to establish his legitimacy before the Jews who would ultimately condemn him to death for blasphemy.   Nevertheless, his miracles were undeniable by their nature, and it was only the obstinacy and arrogance of the people to whom he was sent that enabled them to deny him. 

Muhammad's night journey was obviously not easy for the pagan Makkans to believe.   Nevertheless, the Prophet proved it logically by describing the approaching caravans that he overtook on his miraculous return. 


Thus, this particular prophetic miracle not only established the Prophet's eminence for Muslims as discussed above, but it also helped to prove his prophethood to the non-believers of his time. 

Celebrating the Event


As far as the Muslims are concerned, there is no particular celebration, fast or prayer to commemorate Al-Isra and Al-Miraj.   But in some places, the Muslims themselves have started to have commemorative functions, where the story of the night journey is told in poetry or lectures. 


While the Prophet himself did not establish these practices, there are scholars who maintain that gatherings meant to remind the Muslims of the importance of Al-Miraj in the history of Islam, or to remind us of the importance of love for the Prophet and the significance of the city of Jerusalem, are permissible.

Free time is another great blessing from God that each of us possesses, regardless of how busy we think we are.  Spending this time wisely means not wasting it in fruitless activities that have no benefit.  Even the simplest of acts can become worthwhile by simply doing them for the sake of God.  If we free ourselves from fruitless time wasting activities it is possible the time to increase our religious deeds.  When a person chooses wisely, worldly deeds can also be done for the sake of God.  Remember that time moves inexorably forward.  Do it today because you may not have a tomorrow.  Use your free time wisely today before life is filled with worldly obligations that contain no benefit whatsoever unless you live every moment to please God.

The final thing we have been advised to take advantage of is, life before death overtakes us.  Every morning we should thank God for another day.  Each day is a chance to do well; to spend in charity, to worship longer, harder, or in a better way.  It is a chance to spread good cheer, smile, and pay that extra dollar or two in charity.  It is a chance to perform countless random acts of kindness.  We have become relaxed about the reality of death.  At some point, perhaps in a matter of hours, minutes, or even seconds, our life will be taken away from us.  Prophet Muhammad advises us to take advantage of the time we have.  Do what you can now, not tomorrow, for tomorrow may never come.

This reminder from the Prophet Muhammad deals with responsibility, wisdom, foresight and time management, but it is not the only time he reminded us of the importance of being aware of our blessings and using them to our own advantage.  We are constantly reminded, throughout the Quran and the traditions of the Prophet, that time is fleeting and that every little thing we do is able to become a source of great reward.  Prophet Muhammad also said, “Three things follow the deceased [to his grave], two of them return and one remains with him.  His family, wealth and deeds follow him, while his family and wealth return, his deeds remain with him. ”

There are many ways to exhibit good character.  However, it all goes back to four essentials.
1.  Patience: It takes patience to be obedient to God, and to be gentle and kind under trying circumstances.  It takes patience to swallow back anger and exercise self-restraint.  Patience is necessary for the qualities of forgiveness, pardon, and self-restraint.
God says:
"Let them pardon and overlook.  Do you not wish that God should forgive you? And God is Forgiving and Merciful. " (Quran 24:22)

2.  Decency: This is the quality that helps people abstain from base and ignoble behavior and turns their hearts to that which is noble and high-minded.  A decent heart will be honest with the Creator and to those he or she deals with.

3.  Courage: This is the quality that inspires people to greatness and generosity and prevents them from succumbing to anger and rash behavior.

4.  Justice: One needs to be moderate in one’s behavior.  Every noble character trait stands between two ignoble traits at opposite extremes.  For instance, gentleness is a good character trait, akin to kindness.  However, taking it to an excess leads to indignity and humiliation, while being neglectful of it leads to harshness, cruelty, and severity.  Generosity is another good and desirable character trait.  Taking it too far leads to reckless spending and wastefulness, while neglecting it makes one a greedy, envious miser.


People naturally possess many good qualities and character traits, some of which they learnt from their parents or picked up from their social environment.  These qualities become part of their personalities.

Prophet Muhammad said to Ashajj Abd al-Qays: "You possess two qualities that God loves: gentleness and forbearance.

In some narrations of this event, Prophet Muhammad goes on to tell Ashajj that God made these traits part of his natural disposition, to which Ashajj replied: "Praise be to God who placed within me two qualities that God and His Messenger love. "

There are many Prophetic narrations which clarify the days that are desirable for a Muslim to fast; they are as follows:

 


Six days from the month of Shawwaal: Abu Ayyoob Al ‘Ansaari may Allaah be pleased with him narrated that the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) said: “He who fasts Ramadan and follows it with six days of Shawwaal, this is as if he fasted for the whole year. ” [Ahmad, Abu Daawood and At-Tirmithi]

Three days of every month: Abu Hurayrah and Abu Tharr may Allaah be pleased with them said: “TheProphet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) advised us never to quit (praying) the two Rak'ahs of Ad-Dhuha, and the Witr (prayer) before going to bed (at night); and to fast three days of every month.  It is desirable if these days are the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth days (of each lunar month). ” [Muslim]

Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, said: "I have only been sent to perfect good moral character. "[1]
The purpose of all the revealed books has always been inner purification.  Abraham prayed to his Lord to send to his descendants a Messenger who would recite His signs to them, teach them the scripture, and purify them.  God answered his prayer by sending Muhammad.  God says: "It is He who has sent amongst the unlettered people a Messenger from among themselves, to rehearse to them His Signs, to purify them, and to instruct them in the scripture and wisdom,- although they had been, before, in manifest error. " (Quran 62:2)

He also says:
"Likewise, We have sent unto you a Messenger from among yourselves, who recites unto you Our revelations and purifies you, and teaches you the scripture and wisdom, and teaches you that which you did not know. " (Quran 2:151)
This great purpose is what Prophet Muhammad declared when he said: "I have only been sent to perfect good moral character. "[2]

The "good moral character" referred to here is comprehensive.  It includes how we conduct ourselves with our Lord, how each of us relates to his or her self, and how we treat other people.
The Prophet’s statement implies there are two types of good moral conduct.  The first is common knowledge.  People know it instinctively.  The other type is that which completes and perfects it.  This cannot be known without God’s guidance through revelation.  The Prophet was sent to teach it to the people as part of the message he brought.


The Prophet’s guidance in this matter is vast.  Many books have been written about it.  One of the most famous hadith in this regard is where the Prophet said: "Nothing weighs heavier in the balance on the Day of Judgment than good character.  God hates that which is wanton and base. "[3]


The Prophet was asked what causes the most people to enter paradise.  He said: "Fear of God and good character. " He was then asked what brought the most people to the Hellfire.  He said: "The tongue and the private parts. "[4]

The Prophet’s servant Anas observed: "God’s Messenger had the best character of all people. "[5]

He also said: "I served the Prophet for ten years and he never once rebuked me.  He never once said about something I did: ‘Why did you do that?’ and he never said about something I didn’t do: ‘Why didn’t you do that?’"[6]

Al-Nawwas bin Saman asked the Prophet about righteousness and sin.  He replied: "Righteousness is to exhibit good character.  Sin is what disturbs your heart and you hate for others to know about it. "[7]

The Prophet said: "The believers who have the most perfect faith are those who have the best character, and the best of them are those who are best to their womenfolk. "[8]

He also said: "The most beloved and nearest of you to me on the Day of Judgment will be those of you with the best character.  The most detestable and remote from me on the Day of Judgment will be those who are babblers, those who put people down, and those who are vainglorious. "[9]

It is enough for us to look at the Prophet’s life, his relationship with his Lord, and how he treated people of all walks of life - his household, his relatives, his Companions, and his enemies.
Once the Prophet borrowed money from a man, and the man came demanding payment, speaking very harshly.  The Companions wanted to respond to the man’s harshness, but the Prophet said: "leave him alone.  The one who has a right to something is allowed to speak. "[10]

Whenever the Prophet borrowed something from someone, he would always return it with more and pray for that person.  He used to say: "The only reward for a loan is complete repayment and praise. "[11]

Abd Allah bin Salam was one of the leading Jewish scholars in Madinah.  He was just-minded and a seeker of the truth.  When he heard about Prophet Muhammad’s arrival, he went to have a look at him.  When he saw the Prophet’s face, he knew that it was not the face of a liar.  The first thing he heard the Prophet say was: "O people! If you spread the greeting of peace among you, feed those who are in need, maintain family relations, and pray at night while people are sleeping, you will enter Paradise with ease. "[12]

Abd Allah ibn Salam was able to read from the Prophet’s countenance the signs that he was honest, trustworthy, and pure-hearted.  Such a countenance is only for people whose hearts are truly pure, whose conduct is righteous, and who devote themselves to God.

1.       Striving.     To strive within yourself to exhibit good character traits and refrain from bad ones.     God says: "Those who strive for Our sake, We will guide them to Our paths.   " (Quran 29:69)  Good character is part of God’s guidance.     

2.       Self-assessment.     This means to look back on one’s behavior.     Those who call themselves to account benefit from it in all aspects of their lives.     This is why God swears by the "self-reproaching spirit" in the Quran.     Al-Hasan al-Basrī explains that the self-reproaching spirit describes the spirit of the believer.     

3.       Aspiring for the best.     We should aspire to be the best we can be, and this includes our behavior.     We should seek out and even create opportunities to exhibit good behavior.     

4.       Substitution.     We should find alternatives to the bad behavior that we exhibit, alternatives that allow us to express and develop our good traits.     

We are influenced by the people around us, by our families, classmates, colleagues, and friends.     However, the greatest influence over us is the influence we have upon our own individual selves, in how we approach and understand ourselves, train ourselves and censure ourselves.     This means we need to recognize our faults and our weaknesses as well as our virtues and strengths.     
O God!  Help us to see the weaknesses within ourselves and help us to overcome them.     Do not leave us without Your assistance for a moment.

In the famous hadeeth of Jibril عليه السلام narrated by Sayyiduna Abu Huraira رضى الله عنه (Hadeeth 47, Abridged Saheeh al-Bukhari), Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.  says ‘Ihsaan is that you worship Allah as though you see Him.   Then, if you do not see Him then indeed He sees you’. 

This sentence of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.   can be understood as follows; ihsaan is that you reach such a degree of devotion, sincerity, godliness, and awareness in your worship as well as in your very being and existence, that you obey Allah and worship Him in such a state that your belief extends to your body and mind.   Not only are you convinced of Allah سبحانه وتعالى and your relationship with Him but that belief and conviction, that faith in Allah عز وجل permeates your very body, nay your very existence.   And thus with this state of mind, heart and spirit you worship Allah سبحانه وتعالى with such conviction and faith as though you are constantly seeing Allah سبحانه وتعالى Himself.   That is your level of awareness. 

That is your state of obedience.   Not only in salah, not only when you recite the Qur’an, not only when you engage in the dhikr (remembrance) of Allah but throughout your life you reach that level of awareness, devotion and concentration in your ibad’ah that you behave respectfully towards Allah عز وجل and you behave in such a state as though you are constantly seeing Allah

It is related by Abdullah bin Masood that the Apostle of God said:
“The tears that fall from the eyes of a truthful Believer, out of the fear of the Lord, and, then, roll down his face, however little they are, even of the size of a fly [i.  e.  , just one drop], shall prevent the Fire of Hell from [touching] his face.  ”
[Ibn Majah]

Commentary

It shows that the face that gets wet, at any time, with tears shed in response to the fear of the Lord will remain protected from the Fire of Hell. 

generally, means that it is the characteristic attribute of that deed, and God will keep him safe from the infernal Fire who will carry it out provided that he is not guilty of a mortal sin which calls for the punishment of Fire, or if he has ever committed a sin entailing damnation, he has offered sincere repentance for it and resolved not to do it again

It is related by Abbas bin Adbul Muttalib that he heard the Apostle of God say: “He tasted the flavour of Faith and experienced its sweetness who agreed with a truthful heart to accept God as His Cherisher, Islam as his religion, and Muhammad as his Prophet. ” [Bukhari]



Just as all delicious foods posses a flavour but can be perceived only when one’s faculty of taste has not been lost or become perverted due to illness or any other cause, there is also a special sweetness in faith which can be enjoyed by those alone who have, willingly and earnestly, made Allah their Lord and Master, Muhammad (PBUH) their prophet and guide, and Islam their religion and way of life, and whose hearts have bowed in submission to God and yielded in obedience to the prophet and assented to be the adherents of the path of Islam.  In other words, their bond with God, the prophet and Islam is not merely formal, hereditary or intellectual but real, sincere and genuine.



Anas related to us that “Only he will taste the sweetness of faith who has these three qualities: the love of God and the prophet that comes to him before everything else, he loves whom he loves solely for the sake of God, and the idea of going back to apostasy after he has embraced Islam is as repugnant to him as being thrown into fire. ”

[Bukhari and Muslim]



The subject matter of this tradition is almost identical to that of proceeding one.  It says that the sweetness of faith can only be perceived by him whose love for God and the Apostle is stronger that for anyone or anything else in the world, so much so that when he loves somebody, it is wholly for the sake of God, and who is so deeply devoted to the Islamic faith that the very idea of leaving it and reverting back to the apostasy is as painful to him as being cast into fire

The calendar year of Islam begins not with the birthday of our prophet (peace be on him), not from the time that the revelation came to him (Bethat) nor from the time of his ascension to heaven, but with the migration (Hijra) from an undesirable environment into a desirable place to fulfill Allah's command.  It was migration from a plot that was set by the leaders of the Quraysh who were plotting to kill prophet Muhammad, and to destroy the truth that today is being conveyed to mankind everywhere against tyranny and injustice.  Their purpose was to destroy the foundation of the Islamic state, the Sunnah of the tradition of the prophet, and to prevent the revelation being delivered by Allah's messenger to mankind.


The Islamic calendar is reckoned from the time of migration (Hijra) of Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) from Mecca to Madina.  The Prophet's decision to migrate from Mecca came after several years of inhuman treatment of the faithful by the powerful tribes who were united despite all their feuds to stop the spread of Islam.

Prophet Mohammad's decision to leave Mecca coincided with the infidel's plan to assassinate him.  In 622 AD, the Quresh tribesmen held a meeting and decided that a band of young men, one from each tribe, should assassinate Prophet Mohammad collectively so that their responsibility for the murder could not be placed on any particular tribe.

On the eventful night, the Prophet asked his cousin Ali Ben Abutalib to take his place in bed to make the Meccans think that he was asleep.  The Prophet himself slipped out unobserved alongwith his loyal follower Abu Bakr (who was chosen as the first C aliph after the death of the prophet).  They secretly made their way to a cave named Thawr, not far from Mecca and lay in hiding there for a day or two until Abu Bakr's son reported that the search for him had been given up.  Then the two set out from Madina on camel back.  They reached Quba, on the edge of the Madina oasis, on 12th Rabiul Awwal.  With Mohammad's arrival in Quba a new phase of his career and glory of Islam started.

This migration has a special significance in the history of Islam.  It ended the Meccan period of humiliation and torture and began the era of success.  His own people to whom he preached Islam for 13 years neglected the Prophet of Islam.  But he was cordially received in Madina as an honored chief.

In Madina his power enhanced day by day.  Here he was not only the religious leader but took the role of a politician and statesman too.  Prophet Mohammad expired ten years after his migration to Madina but only in one decade he changed the course of human history.

In view of this special significance of the Prophet's migration the consultative body advised the Second Islamic Caliph, Omar ben Khattab, to start the Islamic year from the date of migration of the Prophet from Mecca to Madina.

According to early Moslem scholars, Abu Musa Al Shari drew attention of Omar to an improperly dated debenture or IOU which was payable in the month of Shaban but it was not clear which Shaban was actually meant, the present one or the coming one.  Omar called the dignitaries for consultation who made several suggestions to begin the Islamic calendar.

Ali (who later became the fourth caliph) suggested the Hijra as the beginning of the Islamic year with Moharram as its first month.  Consequently, Caliph Omar in 21 A. H.  or 641 A. D introduced the Islamic calendar in its present form.

QURANIC GUIDANCE

The guidance about the Islamic calendar is taken from the following verses from the Holy Quran: (In the name of GOD most gracious and most merciful)

"Lo the number of the months with God is twelve months. " IX:36.

"They ask thee, of new moons.  Say: They are fixed seasons for mankind and for the pilgrimage. " II:189.

"He it is who appointed the sun a splendor and the moon a light, and measured for her stages, that ye might know the number of the years, and the reckoning. " X:5

The Islamic Calendar of 12 Lunar Months is determined by observation of the new moon with no effort by intercalation (addition) or other means to synchronize the Lunar year with the Solar year.

Moderation in Human Relations

“Love your friend moderately lest he becomes your enemy one day, and hate your enemy moderately lest he becomes your friend one day!” Tirmidhi

When we get extremely close to people and lower our guard by letting them know every detail of our life, trusting them with everything, a day can come when we regret because they can hold us ransom with what they know about us if the friendship is broken f…or some reason. 

At times we cannot correct people because we have allowed them to get so close to us that they would use against us some of what they know of us. 

Similarly when we dislike someone, we should never oppress them or do something unbecoming of a true believer as a day may come when a strong friendship is developed between us and we are embarrassed by past actions. 

Amazing piece of advice which is worth pondering over and making good use of in our lives.   An enemy can become a very great friend or relative and a friend can become a fierce enemy. 

“The Almighty is all able to create between you and your enemies a strong bond of friendship for indeed Allah is All Able, Allah is Most Forgiving Most Merciful

It is related that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said ‘If the one passing in front of the one praying knew what was against him, his waiting forty would be better for him than passing in front of him. ’ [Bukhari] Abu al-Nadr, one of the sub narrators, said ‘I don’t know whether he said forty days, or months or years’.  In a version narrated by al-Bazzar the hadith reads ‘forty autumns’.

The offence being as serious as it is, the scholars defined what constitutes passing in front of somebody praying.  If the one praying is in an open space or a large mosque, the scholars differed concerning what is considered passing in front, both opinions being deemed strong and follow-able.


One opinion is that it is passing by his place of prostration, such that if one where to pass in front of him but beyond his immediate place of prostration there would be no sin upon one.  The other opinion, which is ibn Abidins preference, is that one would be considered passing in front if one is within the field of vision of the one praying if his eyes were fixed on his place of prostration.

If the one praying is in a room or a small mosque then one will be sinful for passing in front regardless of how far in front of him one is.  Ibn Abidin defines a small mosque as being forty cubits.

However, is the one passing in front always to blame?

The possible scenarios that may occur are four,

1.  The one passing has an alternative to passing in front and the one praying did not pray in a place where he is in people’s way.
-In this case the sin is only on the one passing.

2.  The one passing has no alternative to passing and the one praying was in a place where he would be in people’s way.
-The sin in this case is solely on the one praying.

3.  The one passing has an alternative to passing in front and the one praying was in a place where he would get in people’s way.
-The sin is on both of them.

4.  Neither does the one passing have an alternative nor is the one praying in people’s way.  -The sin is on neither of them.

In all of these cases the one passing in front would be free from sin if the one praying were to keep a sutra in front of him.  A sutra is an object of about a cubit in height that one places in front of one as one prays.

One last scenario that is relevant to mention is that if someone prays near the entrance of the mosque or without filling in the gaps in the row in front, one can walk in front of him to fill in the gaps.  [Radd al-Muhtar, 1:427, Dar Li Ihya al-Turath al-‘Arabi]

Looking now to the question at hand, if the mosque is considered a large mosque then there is no problem at all as there is no harm in walking in front of somebody by a few

metres in a small mosque.  If it is not a large mosque then there still is no sin on the men as they are walking to fill in the rows which they can not do with out walking in front of the women.

Narrated: Abdullah bin Abbas
who said : One day I was behind the prophet and he said to me: "Young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice] : Be mindful of Allah, and Allah will protect you.  Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you.  If you ask, ask of Allah; if you seek help, seek help of Allah.

Know that if the Nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything, it would benefit you only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with anything, they would harm you only with something Allah had already prescribed for you.  The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried. " narrated by Termithi,

who said it is true and fine hadith In a version other than that of Tirmithi it reads: ". . Be mindful of Allah, you will find Him before you.  Get to know Allah in prosperity and He will know you in adversity.  Know that what has passed you by was not going to befall you; and that what has befallen you was not going to pass you by.  And know that victory comes with patience, relief with affliction, and ease with hardship.

Avoiding Contention.

The Prophet, sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam, said, “If a man gives up contention when he is in the wrong, a house will be built for him within the Garden of Paradise; but if a man gives up contention, even when he is in the right, a house will be built for him in the loftiest part of the Garden. ” (Termithi) The value of this advice lies in the fact that contention and disputes lead to a breakdown in the relationship, even rancor, enmity, and hostility.  I have worked with many families where this has occurred and it can be very difficult to mend the wounds that have been created and to bring family members back together.  It goes without saying that it is best to completely avoid reaching this low level.


Let us all work to improve our style of communication and our relationships with each other.  When our children feel that their parents understand them and are willing to listen to them, they will open up their hearts and trust will develop.  Effective teaching and discipline cannot be implemented without a certain level of trust, understanding, and mutual respect.

If you are concerned about your children in a non-Muslim environment and it is affecting the way you interact with them, the best you can do is teach and advise them, give them responsibility, trust them, and let them know that you care for them.  We can then make du’a and rely upon Allah’s Grace and Assistance.  This is our best weapon in a world of non-belief.  May Allah help each of us to strengthen the ties that bind us together as a family and bring happiness and contentment to our homes.

The hadith related by Hakim and Bayhaqi, from Abu Sa`id (Allah be pleased with him), “Whoever recites Surat al-Kahf on Friday, light shall shine forth for him between the two Fridays”.   [Ibn Hajar, Talkhis al-Habir]

Hazrat Al Baraa said that when a man was reciting Surah Kahf with a horse tied with two ropes at one side.   Suddenly a cloud overshadowed him, and as it began to come nearer and nearer, his horse began to take fright.   He went and mentioned it to the Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihe wasallam in the morning and he said, “That was tranquillity which came down by reason of the Qur’aan.  ”

Hazrat Abu Darda radiyallahu anhu reported Allah’s Messenger sallallahu alaihe wasallam saying, “If anyone memorises ten verses from the beginning of Surah Kahf, he will be protected from the Dajjal (Anti-Christ).  ” (Muslim)

Hazrat Abu Darda radiyallahu anhu reported Allah’s Messenger sallallahu alaihe wasallam saying, “Anyone who reads the first three verses of Surah Kahf, he will be protected from the trial of the Dajjal (Anti-Christ).  ” (Tirmizi)

In a hadith transmitted by Ibn Abi ’al-Dunya in his Commanding the Good and Forbidding Evil from Abu Umama (Allah be pleased with him) the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said to his Companions (Allah be pleased with them): “How will your situation be when your women become tyrannical, your youth become transgressors and you abandon striving and jihad in the path of Allah?” They asked, “Will that really occur? The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Yes, by the One in whose hand my soul is, something even worse than that will occur. ” They said, “What could be worse than that, O Messenger of Allah?”

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said; “How will your state be when you stop commanding the good and you stop preventing the evil?” They said, “Is that something that will occur?”

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “How will it be when you will begin to consider the good as evil, and when you will begin to consider the evil as good?” [They were shocked] and said, “Is that truly to occur, O Messenger of Allah?”

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Yes, of course.  Allah says that I swear by Myself that I will spread such a trial in the land that even the wise ones among you could become lost. ”

This hadith tells us of a gradual change in perspectives among people as their righteous behaviour diminishes and they eventually confuse what is good for what is evil, leading to a state where even those known for their wisdom have become lost.  At present, we are living through, and witnessing, many of the things which the hadith describes.  The point to ponder is that, if Allah has not saved us from these evils, then we may already be guilty of considering what is good according to the Shari‘a to be evil, and what is evil according to the Shari‘a to be good.

There is another hadith in which the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said: “A servant does work like that of the people of Paradise until there is a short distance left between him and Paradise, when the destiny written about him by Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) [through his eternal knowledge] overcomes him, and he perpetrates an act of the people of Hellfire, and thus enters the Hellfire.  Then, there are certain servants who do the actions of the people of Hellfire all their life, until there is a very short distance remaining between them and the Hellfire, until the destiny written about them by Allah (May He be glorified and exalted) overcomes them and they do an act of the people of Paradise and thus they enter into Paradise. ”

An explanation of this hadith is that some people’s actions are considered evil based on how they are perceived by other people and other people’s actions are considered good based on how he or she is viewed by others.  However, there is something hidden inside the individual that eventually overcomes him or her, which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said that what is really taken into consideration is the final sealing state of an individual at the time of their death (innama ’l-a’mal bi ’l-khawatim).

Listening to Quran is the perfume of the souls, the calmer of hearts, and the food of the spirit.  Is is one of the most important psychological medicines.  It is a source of pleasure, even to some animals – and pleasure in moderation purifies inner energy, enhances the functioning of the faculties, slows down senile decay by driving out its diseases, improves the complexion, and refreshes the entire body.

Abu Nu’aim states, in his Tib an-Nabbi, that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said that the benefits of listening to recitation are increased when it is understood – that is, when its meaning is understood.  Allah Himself says:

…so give good news to My slaves, those who listen to the word and then follow the best of it…(Qur’an: 39. 17-18)

Muhammad ibn (son of) Abdullah ibn (son of) Abdul Mutalib, was born on 12 Rabi 'Awwal in the year 570 C. E.  (Christian Era) in Makkah, (today: Saudi Arabia) and he died in 633 C. E.  in Yathrib (today: Madinah, Saudi Arabia)



In Arabic the word prophet (nabi) is derived from the word naba which means news.  Thus we deduce that a prophet spreads the news of God and His message, they are in a sense God’s ambassadors on earth.  Their mission is to convey the message to worship One God.  This includes, calling the people to God, explaining the message, bringing glad tidings or warnings and directing the affairs of the nation.  All the prophets were anxious to convey God’s message sincerely and completely and this included the last prophet, Muhammad.  During his final sermon Prophet Muhammad asked the congregation three times whether he had delivered the message, and called on God to witness their answer, which was a resounding “yes!”.

As well as the essence of their call to One God, another accepted sign of the truth of the prophets is how they live their lives.  The accounts of Prophet Muhammad’s life that we have inherited from our righteous predecessors illustrate that Muhammad’s Prophethood was guided by God from the very beginning.  Long before, Prophethood Muhammad was being prepared to guide humankind to the straight path and his life experiences stood him in good stead for such a weighty mission.  Then at the age of 40 when Prophethood was bestowed upon him, God continued to support and affirm his mission.  Any account of Muhammad’s life is filled with examples of his exemplary character; he was merciful, compassionate, truthful, brave, and generous, while striving solely for the rewards of the Hereafter.  The way Prophet Muhammad dealt with his companions, acquaintances, enemies, animals and even inanimate objects left no doubt that he was ever mindful of God.

Muhammad’s birth was accompanied by many so called miraculous events and the talk of the extraordinary events no doubt functioned as signs of Prophethood,

Special but not unique circumstances surrounded childhood of Prophet Muhammad and these undoubtedly had a bearing on his character.  By the time he was eight years old he had suffered through the death of both his parents and his beloved grandfather Abdul Muttalib.  He was left in the care of his uncle and great supporter Abu Talib.  Thus even as a young boy he had already suffered great emotional and physical upheaval.  Both the many chroniclers of Muhammad’s life and the Quran acknowledge his disrupted life.

Did He not find you (O Muhammad) an orphan and gave you a refuge? (Quran 93:6)

Muhammad’s uncle Abu Talib was poor and struggled to keep his family fed, thus during his adolescence Muhammad worked as a shepherd.  From this occupation he learned to embrace solitude and developed characteristics such as patience, cautiousness, care, leadership and an ability to sense danger.  Shepherding was an occupation that all the prophets of God we know of had in common.  ‘…The companions asked, “Were you a shepherd?” He replied, “There was no prophet who was not a shepherd. ”’[1]

In his teens Muhammad sometimes travelled with Abu Talib, accompanying caravans to trade centres.  On at least one occasion, he is said to have travelled as far north as Syria.  Older merchants recognized his character and nicknamed him Al-Amin, the one you can trust.  Even in his youth he was known as truthful and trustworthy.  One story that is accepted by most Islamic scholars and historians is the account of one of Prophet Muhammad’s trips to Syria.

The story goes that the monk Bahira foretold the coming Prophethood and counselled Abu Talib to “guard his nephew carefully”.  According to biographer Ibn Ishaq, as the caravan in which Prophet Muhammad was travelling approached the edge of town, Bahira could see a cloud that appeared to be shading and following a young man.  When the caravan halted under the shadow of some trees, Bahira “looked at the cloud when it over-shadowed the tree, and its branches were bending and drooping over the apostle of God until he was in the shadow beneath it. ” After Bahira witnessed this he observed Muhammad closely and asked him many questions concerning a number of Christian prophecies he had read and heard about.

The young Muhammad was distinguished among his people for his modesty, virtuous behaviour and graceful manners, thus it was no surprise for his companions to see him, even as a youth many years before Prophethood, shun superstitious practices and keep away from drinking alcohol, eating meat slaughtered on stone altars or attending idolatrous festivals.  By the time he reached adulthood Muhammad was thought of as the most reliable and trustworthy member of the Meccan community.  Even those who concerned themselves with petty tribal squabbles acknowledged Muhammad’s honesty and integrity.

Muhammad’s virtues and good moral character was established from a young age, and God continued to support and guide him.  When he was 40 years old Muhammad was given the means to change the world, the means to benefit the whole of humanity

Anas said, “The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, addressed us with a speech whose like I have never heard.
He said, ‘If you were to know what I know, you would laugh little and weep much. ’
The Companions of the Messenger of Allah covered their faces and sobbed. ”
[Bukhari, Muslim]

Everyone is aware of the devastation that natural disasters bring with them.  Many lose their lives, hundreds of thousands lose relatives, entire communities are wiped out and countless buildings and properties are destroyed.  Thousands, even millions are left homeless, having lost everything they once owned, living under open skies with nothing to eat and cover themselves with.  Even after the calamity has subsided, the death toll continues to increase with the spread of disease.

When calamities strike, we often think about our roles and responsibilities, as human beings and as Muslims.  It is unfortunate that for most of us, it takes such calamities to make us reflect on the Power and lofty Attributes of Allāh ta‘ālā.  Rather than expressing shallow sorrow and a momentary shock, there are a few points that we need to reflect and act upon, so that events like these can cause us to become better Muslims for the rest of our lives:

1.  Allāh ta‘ālā is the Hākim (The Supreme Ruler) and the Hakīm (The Most Wise)

First of all, one has to reaffirm in one’s mind and heart that whatever happens, whether good or bad in appearance, is according to the Wish of Allāh ta‘ālā.  Allāh ta‘ālā is Hākim i. e.  He has Power over everything.  Every single particle in the whole universe is under His Control.  The turning of the leaf in the air while it is falling from the tree, to the up turning and shaking of the earth itself, as in the case of an earthquake, everything is in His Absolute Control.  The commands, wishes and controls of everyone else are subjugated to His Command and Governance.  The varied circumstances that one observes or experiences in one’s life are also in His total Control.

There are many incidents and events in a person’s life, during which one hopes for a positive outcome through worldly means e. g.  when a relative is seriously ill we can hope for recovery by consulting a spe...t, along with our belief that only that will happen which Allāh ta‘ālā has ordained.  Nevertheless we take the help of worldly means to satisfy ourselves and try to rectify the situation to the best of our ability.

However, when faced with natural disasters like storms, earthquakes and floods, there is no hope of any worldly means which we can employ to circumvent, overcome or prevent re-occurrence of such situations.  Such natural disasters are entirely in the Control of Almighty Allāh and we are forced to acknowledge that.  Indeed as Muslims we should never have disregarded and ignored the Absolute Power of Allāh ta‘ālā and it should have been reflected upon in our day to day actions and deeds.

However, it is comforting to know that Allāh ta‘ālā is not only the Hākim (The Supreme Ruler) but He is also the Hakīm (The Most Wise).  Allāh’s ta‘ālā Governance of the universe is unlike that of worldly rulers.  His Control and Governance is full of Supreme Wisdom and Divine Justice.  Hence even in natural disasters, there is the hidden Wisdom of the Almighty, which may not be apparent to our physical eyes.

2.  Turn Towards Allāh ta‘ālā in Repentance

Every person, during such times should turn towards Allāh ta‘ālā with humbleness, faith and genuine repentance.  According to the Sharī‘ah, common and open disobedience of Allāh ta‘ālā is one of the many reasons for the cause of calamities like earthquakes.  When the land is overloaded with the disobedience of Allāh ta‘ālā, earthquakes from beneath and violent storms from above are commonplace.  There are various scientific explanations as to why natural disasters occur, however the underlying facts point towards ‘how’ they happen and not ‘why’ they happen.  The answer to ‘why’ and ‘when’ and even to ‘how’, in reality, remains with Allāh ta‘ālā.  An answer to ‘why’ has been revealed in the Qur’ān:

(Corruption and) Mischief has appeared on land and sea because of what the hands of men have earned, that He (Allāh) may give them a taste of some of their deeds in order that they may turn back (from evil).  (30:41)

Incidents like these are, as it were, ‘wakeup’ alarm calls from Allāh ta‘ālā.  Allāh ta‘ālā in His Infinite Mercy is jolting us through such incidents, so that we may mend our ways and reflect on our transgressions and as a result rectify ourselves before it is too late.  Allāh ta‘ālā has revealed to his beloved Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, that as long as this Ummah continues to repent for their wrong-doings, He will not punish them through calamities.  Incidents like these should not be viewed with some momentary sympathy or investigated out of curiosity, but treated strictly as a reminder to wake up and reflect on our lives of disobedience.  The way Allāh has the Power to cause calamities in any part of the world, He also has the Power to cause a catastrophe here, in this very city, in the very vicinity of our homes.

Hence it is absolutely essential for Muslims, not just from the affected regions, but from all over the world, to turn towards Allāh ta‘ālā.  They must direct all their attention towards Him and reflect on their lives to find out where the Commands of Allāh ta‘ālā are being violated, then sincerely repent and resolve to adorn their future lives with taqwā, abstain from the disobedience of Allāh ta‘ālā, and observe His Commands.

3.  Pray for the Afflicted

Our beloved Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam has commanded us to support and help the victims of calamities, whether they be Muslims or otherwise.  The best and the most valuable support and help is to make du‘ā i. e.  sincere prayers for the wellbeing of the victims.  Du‘ā is a very powerful and potent means, which is available to each and every one of us, the one with worldly resources as well as the one without.  Hence one should sincerely pray for the well being of the victims.  One should pray that Allāh ta‘ālā gives them strength, patience and comfort and that He protects and guides them through these critical times and provides rapid recovery from their physical, mental and spiritual wounds.  Only Allāh ta‘ālā has the ability to provide the things asked for in the above prayers.  No amount of worldly means will provide for the loss that has been suffered by the victims.

It is difficult to comprehend or empathise with the situation of the victims.  Scores of them have death hovering over their heads while their dead family members lie beside them.  Thousands of dead bodies are piled up like logs unable to receive a proper burial.  Thousands of people have lost their sons and daughters and thousands of young children have become orphans.  Only prayers will help those people.  So take out some time from listening to the news, reading newspaper reports and chatting about the events and bow down to Allāh ta‘ālā, and pray sincerely and earnestly (after making repentance) for the victims of the calamity.  The victims certainly deserve our prayers, to say the least.  It is their right over the entire Muslim community.

It is also worth mentioning that it will be a gross transgression for anyone to forget their own deeds and start judging the victims, claiming their misdeeds to be the reason for the calamity.  We are in no position to do that.  Besides, this will be tantamount to trying to guess the ‘Hikmah’ (Wisdom) of Allāh! Therefore we should refrain from uttering such words.

4.  Donate Generously

For people far from the afflicted region, the next best thing that they can do to help and support is to provide financial and material help.  The victims have lost everything, their homes and the shelter above their heads, their entire belongings and their livelihoods.  There is an immediate need to provide shelter (as a protection from the cold nights), food and clothing.  There is also a dire need to provide them with medication and other medical accessories and supply them with clean water and sanitation.

Alhamdulillāh, Allāh ta‘ālā has given us abundantly, more than we need.  We do not have to sacrifice our daily food or clothing in order to donate towards the cause.  I request all my brothers and sisters to reflect upon the material blessings that Allāh ta‘ālā has bestowed upon us, despite our not being deserving of them, and donate generously for the victims of this calamity.  There are people out there, among the victims, who, until yesterday, were the patrons of or contributors towards charities themselves, and had donated profusely.  Now, having lost everything, they are in need of charity themselves.  Allāh ta‘ālā will inshā’allāh look favourably upon our generosity and remove future calamities awaiting to befall us.  The Prophet s has mentioned:

Truly sadaqah extinguishes the Wrath of Allāh and saves from an evil death.  (Tirmidhī)

So, as human beings, and more so as Muslims, we should not let this suffering continue without providing help and support according to our individual capabilities.  Do not wait for your zakāh to become due to make a donation.  The need of the situation demands that we donate everything that is in our possession, even if that means undergoing hardships ourselves.  However, since Allāh ta‘ālā has blessed us with adequate wealth we know that we can donate sufficiently without having to undergo such troubles.  We should spend abundantly and generously, as generously as Allāh ta‘ālā has provided for us.  Remember, whatever we will spend, we will do so from that which Allāh ta‘ālā has given us.  It is His Money we will be spending to relieve His Creation.  The Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam said:

All creatures are the dependants of Allāh.  The most beloved to Allāh from all Creation is he who treats His dependants the best.  (Bayhaqī)

Therefore give as much as you can.  This is not a time to wait for someone to come and knock at your door.  Go out looking for reliable organizations and charities with correct channels, so that your money reaches the genuine victims and fulfills their needs.
May Allāh ta‘ālā give us the guidance to learn a lesson from such calamities and grant us the resolve to change our lives for the better.  May Allāh ta‘ālā also give us the tawfīq to pray for the victims and to donate generously.  Āmīn.

Christmas and 25th of December
Many Christians are unaware that the true spirit of reverence which Muslims display towards Jesus and his mother Mary spring from the fountainhead of their faith as prescribed in the Holy Quran.  Most do not know that a Muslim does not take the name of Jesus , without saying Eesa alai-hiss-salaam i. e.  (Jesus peace be upon him).


Jesus is commonly considered to have been born on the 25th of December.  However, it is common knowledge among Christian scholars that he was not born on this day.  It is well known that the first Christian churches held their festival in May, April, or January.  Scholars of the first two centuries AD even differ in which year he was born.  Some believing that he was born fully twenty years before the current accepted date.  So how was the 25th of December selected as the birthday of Jesus ?

Grolier's encyclopedia says: "Christmas is the feast of the birth of Jesus Christ, celebrated on December 25 . . .  Despite the beliefs about Christ that the birth stories expressed, the church did not observe a festival for the celebration of the event until the 4th century. . . .  since 274, under the emperor Aurelian, Rome had celebrated the feast of the "Invincible Sun" on December 25.  In the Eastern Church, January 6, a day also associated with the winter solstice, was initially preferred.  In course of time, however, the West added the Eastern date as the Feast of the Epiphany, and the East added the Western date of Christmas". 

So who else celebrated the 25th of December as the birth day of their gods before it was agreed upon as the birth day of Jesus ? Well, there are the people of India who rejoice, decorate their houses with garlands, and give presents to their friends on this day.  The people of China also celebrate this day and close their shops.  Buddha is believed to have been born on this day.  The great savior and god of the Persians, Mithras, is also believed to have been born on the 25th of December long before the coming of Jesus .

The Egyptians celebrated this day as the birth day of their great savior Horus, the Egyptian god of light and the son of the "virgin mother" and "queen of the heavens" Isis.  Osiris, god of the dead and the underworld in Egypt, the son of "the holy virgin", again was believed to have been born on the 25th of December.

The Greeks celebrated the 25th of December as the birthday of Hercules, the son of the supreme god of the Greeks, Zeus, through the mortal woman Alcmene Bacchus, the god of wine and revelry among the Romans (known among the Greeks as Dionysus) was also born on this day.

Adonis, revered as a "dying-and-rising god" among the Greeks, miraculously was also born on the 25th of December.  His worshipers held him a yearly festival representing his death and resurrection, in midsummer.  The ceremonies of his birthday are recorded to have taken place in the same cave in Bethlehem which is claimed to have been the birth place of Jesus .

The Scandinavians celebrated the 25th of December as the birthday of their god Freyr, the son of their supreme god of the heavens, Odin.

The Romans observed this day as the birthday of the god of the sun, Natalis Solis Invicti ("Birthday of Sol the invincible").  There was great rejoicing and all shops were closed.  There was 419 Scamon and public games.  Presents were exchanged, and the slaves were indulged in great liberties.  These are the same Romans who would later preside over the council of Nicea (325 CE) which lead to the official Christian recognition of the "Trinity" as the "true" nature of God, and the "fact" that Jesus was born on the 25th of December too.

In Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Gibbon says: "The Roman Christians, ignorant of his (Christ's) birth, fixed the solemn festival to the 25th of December, the Brumalia, or Winter Solstice, when the Pagans annually celebrated the birth of Sol " vol.  ii, p.  383.

Christians opposed to Christmas

There are several Christian groups who are opposed to Christmas.  For example, they take the verse from the Bible in Jeremiah 10:2-4 as an admonition against decorating Christmas trees.

The King James Version reads: "Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen. . . .  For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.  They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. "

In order to understand this subject, it is helpful to trace some of the history of Christmas avoidance, particularly its roots in Puritanism.

The Puritans believed that the first-century church modeled a Christianity that modern Christians should copy.  They attempted to base their faith and practice solely on the New Testament, and their position on Christmas reflected their commitment to practice a pure, scriptural form of Christianity.  Puritans argued that God reserved to himself the determination of all proper forms of worship, and that he disapproved of any human innovations - even innovations that celebrated the great events of salvation.  The name Christmas also alienated many Puritans. 


Christmas, after all, meant "the mass of Christ. " The mass was despised as a Roman Catholic institution that undermined the Protestant concept of Christ, who offered himself once for all.  The Puritans' passionate avoidance of any practice that was associated with papal Rome caused them to overlook the fact that in many countries the name for the day had nothing to do with the Catholic mass, but focused instead on Jesus' birth.  The mass did not evolve into the form abhorred by Protestants until long after Christmas was widely observed.  The two customs had separate, though interconnected, histories.

As ardent Protestants, Puritans identified the embracing of Christianity by the Roman Emperor Constantine in the early 300s CE as the starting point of the degeneration and corruption of the church.  They believed the corruption of the church was brought on by the interweaving of the church with the pagan Roman state.  To Puritans, Christmas was impure because it entered the Roman Church sometime in this period.  No one knows the exact year or under what circumstances Roman Christians began to celebrate the birth of their Lord, but by the mid-300s CE, the practice was well established.

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well.  The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.  Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.  He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him.  They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.  At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.

Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.  A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well.  He was astonished at what he saw.  With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing.  He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.  Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

MORAL : Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.  The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.  Each of our troubles is a stepping stone.  We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.  Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1.  Free your heart from hatred – Forgive.
2.  Free your mind from worries – Most never happens.
3.  Live simply and appreciate what you have.
4.  Give more.
5.  Expect less from people but more from yourself.

It is mentioned in the book Raudatus Safa that Pharaoh’s daughter had a maid who was under her command and who used to comb her hair, etc.  She had believed in Musa alayhis salam.  However, she did not expose her iman out of fear for Pharaoh.

Once while she was combing Pharaoh’s daughter’s hair, the comb fell from her hand.  When she bent down to pick it up, she recited Bismillah.  The daughter asked her: “What was it you recited just now? Whose name is that?” She replied: “it is the name of the one who created your father and also gave him a kingdom. ” She became astonished and remarked: “Is there anyone greater than my father!” Saying this she ran out to her father, and related the entire incident him.

Pharaoh became extremely angry, called for the maid, and threatened her.
However she unhesitatingly said: “Do whatever you wish, I will not leave my iman. ”

Nails were fastened to her hands and feet and thereafter hot ash and embers were placed on her.  When this had no effect on her, a child who was in her lap was taken and thrown into the fire.  While the child was in the fire, it said: “Mother! Be patient and don’t ever leave your iman. ”

She remained steadfast on her iman until she was also thrown into that fire.

The story of the birth of Isa (A. S. ) as told in the Qur’an demonstrates again the power of Allah who can make happen whatever He wills.  Just as Ibrahim (A. S. ) and Sara (A. S. ) wondered at being able to have a son at their great age, Isa’s mother, Maryam (peace be upon her) also wondered at being able to have a son when no man had touched her.

Maryam was the daughter of Imran (A. S. ).  When her mother became pregnant with her, she dedicated her baby to Allah for His special service.  Maryam grew up pure and beautiful in the special protection of Allah.  Whenever her guardian, Zakariah (A. S. ), would visit her in her room, he would find that she had been provided with plentiful food and he wondered at it.  It was Allah who was caring for her.

When Maryam became a young woman she was visited by a messenger from Allah.  He told her that she would bear a son named Isa (A. S. ).  He would speak to the people as a child and as an adult.  Allah would teach him the Book and the Wisdom, and he would be a prophet to his people.

Maryam was amazed at this message.  She was a well-behaved young, unmarried woman, so how could she have a baby? Allah’s message was similar to that given to Ibrahim (A. S. ).  Allah creates whatever he wills.  All he has to do is say, “Be,” and it is.

When the time came for Maryam’s baby to be born, she withdrew from her family because she knew they wouldn’t understand.  As the pains of birth began, she came to a palm tree and cried out in despair that she wished she were dead.  A voice answered her, telling her not to grieve, and telling her to shake the palm tree to obtain dates.  Allah also provided her with a small stream to ease her thirst and cool her face during the birth of her son, Isa .

When Isa (A. S. ) had been born, Maryam returned home with him.  When her family saw him they were shocked, as she knew they would be.  But she merely pointed to the baby in explanation and he, the newborn infant, spoke, declaring that he was indeed a servant of Allah, a prophet, blessed by Allah, enjoined to do prayer and charity, and be kind to his mother, humble and not overbearing, and that he would eventually die and be raised to life again.

You can read about Maryam and the birth of Isa (A. S. ) in the following suras of the Qur’an: 3:35-37, 3:42-49, 19:16-40.

Abu 'Abd al-Rahman 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud, radiyallahu 'anhu, reported: The Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, the most truthful, the most trusted, told us: "Verily the creation of any one of you takes place when he is assembled in his mother's womb; for forty days he is as a drop of fluid, then it becomes a clot for a similar period.  Thereafter, it is a lump looking like it has been chewed for a similar period.
Then an angel is sent to him, who breathes the ruh (spirit) into him.  This Angel is commanded to write Four decrees: that he writes down his provision (rizq), his life span, his deeds, and whether he will be among the wretched or the blessed.

I swear by Allah - there is no God but He - one of you may perform the deeds of the people of Paradise till there is naught but an arm's length between him and it, when that which has been written will outstrip him so that he performs the deeds of the people of the Hell Fire; one of you may perform the deeds of the people of the Hell Fire, till there is naught but an arm's length between him and it, when that which has been written will overtake him so that he performs the deeds of the people of Paradise and enters therein. " [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Abu Hurairah 'Abd al-Rahman bin Sakhr, radiyallahu 'anhu, reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, say: "Avoid that which I forbid you to do and do that which I command you to do to the best of your capacity.  Verily the people before you were destroyed only because of their excessive questioning and their disagreement with their Prophets. " [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]




Abu Hamzah Anas bin Malik, radiyallahu 'anhu, who was the servant of the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, reported that the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, said: "None of you truly believes (in Allah and in His religion) until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself" [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Abu Hurairah, radiyallahu 'anhu, reported that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam, said: "Verily Allah the Exalted is pure.  He does not accept but that which is pure.  Allah commands the believers with what He commanded the Messengers.  Allah the Almighty has said: "O you Messengers! Eat of the good things and act righteously" [23:51-53]

.  And Allah the Almighty also said: "O you who believe! Eat of the good things that We have provided you with" [2:167-172].  Then he (the Prophet) mentioned (the case of) the man who, having journeyed far, is disheveled and dusty and who stretches out his hands to the sky (saying): "O Lord! O Lord!" (while) his food was unlawful, his drink was unlawful, his clothing was unlawful, and he is nourished with unlawful things, so how can he be answered?" [Muslim]
